Labels on Floor

Draws the names of rooms, stockpiles and growing zones as labels on the floor, like Prison Architect does.

-- Features
* Names are drawn on the floor, so they will not obscure items and furniture on top of them.
* Rooms can be renamed using a button on the 'Architect -> Orders' menu. Use a blank string to reset.
* Colour, opacity and size limits of labels can be configured in Mod Settings.
* The names of rooms come from their role. Rooms without a role don't get a label, for now.
* Stockpiles will draw their name.
* Growing zones draw their plant name, unless the player renames the zone, in which case that is shown.
* Labels will be shown along the bottom edge or left edge of a room or zone, whichever has the most visible tiles.
* Mod can be added or removed from any save and should not conflict with any other mods.

-- Settings
* Disable the display of room labels or zone labels, if you only want one type displayed.
* Choose between light or dark labels.
* Change label opacity.
* Customise maximum size of text.
* Configure minimum size below which a label will not be drawn.
* Configure furthest zoom level at which labels will be drawn.

-- Notes
* For now this only works in English (or any language using Latin letters without accents).
* The placement of labels is not always the smartest; the logic will improve in future updates.
* Rooms containing zones will show the zone names, but not the room label, as the mod is not yet smart enough to avoid the labels clashing. I will fix that in a future update.

Let me know in the Bug Reports thread of any situations where a room label does not update or display as expected.

-- Future Plans
* I will look at allowing renaming of rooms, including rooms without a role. This will be purely cosmetic, to control what label is shown on the floor.

@Paladin: The labels aren't actually generated with fonts, as I couldn't get the engine to write text in a the map drawing layer (so it can appear behind furniture). So the labels are actually created from a texture of the alphabet. Unfortunately, to support languages other than English this way would be quite time consuming, as that means creating another texture and a mapping function. Maybe in the future I might figure out how to draw text on the map properly and then languages won't be a problem.

Since Tynan made cyrillic symbols in 1.0, just want to ask about version with cyrillic support.
